40m. Memorable climbing up the steep chimney on the right side of the large tapering pillar. Ascend the widening crack "with considerable interest" to belay on top of the pillar. Reasonably protected due to small cracks in the right wall.

What a struggle -made all the more difficult I'm sure by the abundance of green hairy stuff growing all over the left arete and wall. Also the moss and lichen covering many of the small foot holds and smears. And it goes on for ever and ever - 40m. But an awesome climb and a real felling of adventure.
